about

(Snyder/Savarino/Simches/Zbitnoff)

lyrics

Last night I tasted salty kiss
Flavors of fear and bitterness

What a crime to leave unsaid
Leave unspoken the heart's head
What a crime to leave unsaid

Shadow like velvet
Soft on skin
As you linger and long for him

What a crime to leave unsaid
Leave unspoken the heart's head
What a crime to leave unsaid

Now all the times she yelled
Wishes she'd whispered
And in his absence echoes the silence

Sweet sugar so bitter
Shiver like winter on her tongue
Never let another in
To your heart's secret chamber
